Tennesseans Get A Jump-Start On Tax-Free Deals


NASHVILLE and KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - CompUSA is making it easier than ever to save money during Tennessee’s Sales Tax Holiday, April 27 - April 29. In addition to offering great savings, CompUSA is providing two shopping options that will appeal to consumers who love to shop and to those early birds that want to avoid the crowds.

For consumers who love the savings but want to minimize their time shopping during the tax-free holiday weekend, CompUSA is offering product reservations. Customers can reserve products in advance of the tax-free holiday weekend by purchasing a gift card in the amount of products. The products will be reserved in the customer’s name and redeemed with the gift card during the sales tax holiday. Shoppers must pick up their reserved products during tax-free weekend to receive the sales tax break. The product reservation secures the purchase in advance, an added benefit with discounted products that are available only while quantities last.

CompUSA is also adjusting its hours to make shopping more convenient during the tax-free weekend. CompUSA locations in Nashville, Knoxville and Brentwood will extend their regular store hours on Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28 from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and on Sunday, April 29 from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

“Our goal is to provide consumers with the best shopping experience possible and we believe that, in addition to the options of product reservations and extended hours, shoppers will also benefit from exceptional in-store sales, adding to their sales tax savings,” said Harold Havard, district manager, CompUSA.

In addition to the tax-free savings, customers who visit CompUSA stores will benefit from additional savings on popular technology products such as an HP Notebook for $799, a $400 savings; Compaq Computer for $499, a $200 savings; and an Envision LCD screen for $179, a $50 savings.

According to the Tennessee Department of Revenue, technology products that will be exempt from sales tax during the tax-free holiday include computers with a purchase price of $1,500 or less before rebates, not for use in a trade or business. The Tennessee Department of Revenue specifies that, for purposes of this exemption, a computer is defined as a central processing unit (CPU), along with various other components including monitors, keyboards, mouse, speakers, cables to connect components and preloaded software.
